Help with a stripped bolts.
Can any one give me ideas how to remove the stripped bolts?
These are the one that are under the 8 caps on the bottom of the motor.
I was using the E 14 socket.

99% certain they are 12mm 12point not E-14. Maybe the 12point will still get them off ?

if you cant grip them you will probably have to try channel locks. are you sure they're metric? May try tapping a 10 onto the head of the bolt....

MRBTD and SKOEPP thanks for the information.
I ended up drilling the out pita.

Glad you got it. I think this must be a problem and needs to be noted to those that are trying to remove those bolts.
I think since are strecth bolts, they are hard to get to budge. I dont think is a thread issue locking up as once i drilled mine off and split cases I was able to remove the rest of the bolt with my fingers so was not locked up.
I think it is very important to be sure and have a very good bite from the beginning and not ever get the bolt started to strip.
